I’m working on releasing a new book, and it’s at the delicate compile-for-proof phase. I’m having trouble with chapter headings.
My chapters / section folders in Scrivener don’t have pleasant names - they might be something like “Bob kills Mary” or “Do you need this 22.” When I released my last book, it was easy enough when using the Formatting section in the compile tab to just omit the title and viola - you get a nice ToC with “Chapter-One” and so on.
The snarl comes in when trying to add a section for Acknowledgements. Books have the option for “front matter” but not “back matter.” The way I solved this before was to create a level 1 document with the title “Acknowledgements” and then during compile a) omit title on level 1 folders but b) include title on level 1 text.
That was a year ago - this trick no longer seems to work. When I try and compile the work, the preview in Formatting correctly shows that it would include the title, but the compiled version (for Kindle) does not.
Is this a bug, or a feature? How do I fix it? Is there another way of adding back matter?
